    A solid realistic arcade experience that has surpassed any of the other sports titles Midway touches.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A handful of extra modes that cater exclusively to the hardcore DDR player and some meaningless FMV extras makes DDRMAX 2 a rather poor evolution from last year’s DDRMAX prequel.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Though not the ultimate representation of the sport we are still awaiting, the game gets the action through and should satisfy most fans with its packed gameplay. Definitely worth a look.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Hours of deep strategic gameplay, excellent music and interesting stories (particularly in "The Dual Darkness' chapter of the saga) make Growlanser Generations a keeper for RPG strategists in need of a noggin-shaking fix.

    "Goldeneye" fans looking for another adventure probably won't have too good of a time with this one since it needs more than one person to truly shine.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A very well executed and polished rehash of a formula that is in dire need of something new or unique to take the franchise to the next level.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Capcom poured the love into this collection. They took their time to give fans something worthy.

    • 84 Critic Score
    The redesigned mission structure and expanded universe of tricks from the next-generation installments of Tony Hawk 4 made the cut.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    'Best Damn Shooter on a Console.'
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    What Bam!'s 2001 release "Driven" should have, but wasn't: a good racing engine tied to an unfolding story.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The enhanced visual eye-candy (prettier explosions you won’t find on another light gun game, PS2 or otherwise) and solid frame-rate more than compensate for the now-grating voices and repetitive music that share speaker space with some pretty cool shotgun blasts.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    When it comes to delivering consistent and playable virtual simulations of what goes on in NBA courts across the nation, "Live 2002" for PSOne is 'The One' (sorry Jet Li!).
    • 81 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Despite forcing players to spend what seems like an eternity unlocking 90% of the good stuff at the start Hot Shots Golf Open Tee is a winner.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Has a handful of minor flaws (the lead character's limited control over his 12-member mercenary team, PC-like graphic stutters, lackluster multiplayer mode, etc.) that prevent it from reaching the heights of immersion and addictive fun that characterized its spiritual predecessor, "Hitman 2."
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Extreme G3 is so good, that if and when "Wipeout Fusion" is ever released it will have to be such an amazing game to even kiss the shoes of G3.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The best installment in the series, with only a few minor issues keeping it below 3DO's stellar "High Heat Baseball 2003".
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Points off for the annoying sound package and the use of cheap ‘rubber band’ CPU A.I. to keep the races competitive... A rewarding experience. Best EA Big title to date, hands down.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Warning though, this one's not for kids (unless you don't mind them staying up all night, too scared to go to sleep).
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The best reason to play SWON is the story and writing. This is Lucasarts afterall so that should not be surprising to anyone.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    To the poor souls of sports gaming without access to more powerful systems or used copies of last year's edition, "FIFA 2002" is an amusing and deep virtual prelude to the biggest sports tournament in the world.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A collaboration of love for gamers who have been fanatics of either or both series.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Ironically, Deception's Konquest mode that the developer has been pushing so much is the games only real weak point.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Controls are tighter and provide more control of where the ball and team players can be moved than ever before. Spotty visuals (PS2 version) and a complicated Career mode, however, make FIFA Soccer 2005 a good secondary choice after "Winning Eleven 7."
    • 81 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Survives its transition from PC to PS2 with its gameplay depth and well-acted voices intact, but with its graphics severely chopped and its control scheme compromised by the Dual Shock 2 button layout.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    We can safely say that we highly recommend "Valkyrie Profile" as one of the PlayStation's best RPG's on 2000.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Scores major points with its new graphics engine (gorgeous), two-man commentary (perfect) and revamped pitcher/batter interfaces (serviceable).
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the game is identical to the PS One version gameplay wise, the updated graphics are sweet enough to justify having and owning both versions.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A textbook example of how to make a sequel.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    It's just this close (fingers a couple of inches apart) to being one of the deepest and best-designed single-player adventure games of all time.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    What EA Sports' "NHL 2002" is to videogame hockey,..."PGA Tour 2002" has become to videogame golf: the simulation standard-bearer to beat.
